The guy was a lot more serious and kept stressing how important it was that I understood the various aspects of the job. He made a point to mention how this job is not like my previous ones. The job also has its fair share of overtime, and he made a bigger point of that than last week's guy.
This probably means the higher-up have decided not to hire you.

Why? Because 10 minutes is not enough to ensure that you are a qualified candidate, and all managers care about getting good employees. The only reason he wouldn't care, is because he has already decided to pick someone else, but it is impolite to cancel an interview.

In my case, it seemed more like the guy conducting the second interview didn't trust that the guys conducting the first interview did it properly. Which made me wonder, why not just have him sit in the first time? Lots of time saved that way...
